Kyle's favorite bird is a penguin. So he requested a penguin cake for his birthday. Thanks to Pinterest, I was able to find a design that I thought I could manage. I love to make the kids special cakes for their birthdays, but I am always nervous about actually decorating them! Fortunately this one went really well! I am really pleased with how it turned out, though I only realized that I made the little guy cross-eyed after I looked at the pictures.
After cake, icecream, and presents, we let the kids play with sparklers for a few minutes. They all enjoyed that, and even Mercy had fun and didn't burn herself!
